Review Summary: The darker ambient touches of this release will be the ones that will stay with the listener far after the music ends. Overall a very good effort.

House music and techno had a baby, but we just don’t know what to call it yet. The cross-pollination of all the forms of EDM has been leading us to this destination for quite a while now. This is the frustrating part about reviewing something like Luca Draccar’s 4 song EP, No Sometimes Yes, on the Lush Point imprint. It almost defies description though the producer himself gives a pretty apt description of the project in the press release that came along with this submission. Mr. Draccar says that “Electronic music plays the intermediary with supernatural entities.” That pretty much covers it for me.

There is a haunting quality to the music that could only come from a person who is uneasy with the human form of communication and prefers the more esoteric way to convey his feelings to others. A Los Angeles resident by way of Berlin, Germany, and his home country of Italy, Mr. Draccar musically expresses the European sense of alienation and isolation through his music. Each song is like a different facet to the DJ’s personality. A sense of playful urgency that builds over the first track that gives way to a sonic expression of storms building across unsettled skies with breaks of sunshine intermittingly breaking through.

There is always the ever-present heartbeat of house music at the core of these songs, yet the producer uses techno touches to give the music a tougher edge. Blackout is a stand out track in that regard. It could be the marching anthem of the robot army all the tech blogs constantly warn us about. Add in faux “scratches”, and it is like listening to a techno Robot DJ rap battle where the Eminem character ends lying in a collapsed heap on the floor. No Sky is a bit of a downer emotionally, but one could not deny the amount of musical knowledge that went into creating the sonic weaves that blanket the listener. The darker ambient touches of this release will be the ones that will stay with the listener far after the music ends. Overall a very good effort from this newly relocated immigrant to America.

Though do me a favor and upload the albums before you review them, cause I had to add art for like 20 of your most recent reviews.
I'll call your manager if it happens again review intern #12.
